The Area-51 m5790 Special Edition notebooks has the option of an overclocked 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo processor

When it comes to mobile gaming, the folks at Alienware are always on top of the latest in graphics hardware and CPU power. The company's new Area-51 m5790 Special Edition notebook is no exception as it packs loads of high-end components into a 17" desktop replacement frame.

Starting with the processor, Alienware has decided to go where most laptop owners try to stay away from: overclocking. Customers have the option of selecting processors ranging from the lowly 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo T5500 processor to the 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo T7600G ($800 USD upgrade) which is overclocked to a speedy 2.66GHz. T7600G is a processor that Intel released late last year which has an unlocked front side bus (FSB) and core clock.

When it comes to graphics, there are no less than three options available. Customers can choose from a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600, ATI Mobility Radeon X1800 and an ATI Mobility Radeon X1900. All graphics options come with 256MB of dedicated memory.

If you go crazy with the options, you can have an Area-51 m5790 Special Edition notebook loaded up with a Blu-ray drive, 400GB of RAID-0 storage, 2GB of RAM and a WUXGA screen.

Pricing for the Area-51 m5790 Special Edition starts at $1,299 USD. If you go crazy on the options and check every expensive upgrade box, it'll set you back $4,329 USD. Alienware will begin shipping the notebooks on January 31, a day after the official commercial launch of Windows Vista.
